Considering the need to cater to the demands of an ever-increasing population and reach out to those living in the peripherals of the town, commuters have called upon the Southern Railway to establish a new railway station between Thanjavur Junction and Alakkudi station on the Tiruchi side.
“Thanjavur was declared a municipality in 1866 and upgraded as a corporation in 2014 covering an area of 36 square kilometre. It has more than three lakh people. Residential areas, commercial establishments and educational institutions have sprung up on the western parts of Thanjavur town in the recent decades.

include Tamil University, SASTRA University, new Collectorate complex, RTO Office, SP Office besides the existing facilities that include the massive Thanjavur Medical College Hospital that are frequented by thousands of people every day. All of them have to travel at least seven km to reach Thanjavur Junction. If a new railway station is established between Thanjavur and Alakkudi at Reddipalayam or Manojipatti, it will be a huge advantage for the people,” says K. Padmanabhan, former president of the District Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The present Thanjavur Junction is already cramped though it has five platforms and two entrances one each on the southern and northern side. The junction caters to more than 60 services including goods train movement every day besides witnessing a footfall of around 10,000 daily. To top it all, the Junction garners revenue of ₹15 crore a year through sale of tickets and freight bookings. “Vriddhachalam has two stations, Tiruchi three and Coimbatore has four stations within the city limits. Here we need one more station between Thanjavur and Alakkudi”, argues T. Saravanan, secretary, Papanasam Train Passengers Association.
In future, there is a possibility of the Railways introducing Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit service after the completion of the ongoing track doubling and electrification works between Tiruchi and Thanjavur Junctions. The plan is to complete electrification work itself by March next. In this situation a new station nearer to Thanjavur will be a boon to the commuters, points out A. Giri, advisor, Thanjavur District Rail Users Association.

Trichy: Passengers from the Trichy railway division have appealed to the railway authorities to restart the Mayiladuthurai - Trichy - Mayiladuthurai express (Train No 16233/16234) which has been often cancellated between various sections for more than five months on this section on account of line block and maintenance works. Commuters alleged that despite good patronage for the train, railway authorities were purposely suspending the train in an attempt to cancel it completely.
Mayiladuthurai is on the main line section between Trichy and Villupuram. Three major A-grade stations Mayiladuthurai, Kumbakonam and Thanjavur lie on this section. Even with limited operation of trains, about 40,000 passengers use this section daily for their travel needs, commuters says.Quite often, this express has been cancelled between any

two destinations since the first week of April 2017, stating to facilitate engineering works, said A Giri, member of Divisional Rail Users Consultative Committee and vice-president of Thanjavur District Rail Users' Association.
Meanwhile, the Southern Railway has again announced cancellation of the train between Thanjavur - Trichy - Thanjavur from September 10 to 30, for a period of 21 days, he said.
"When the line block and maintenance works were a regular affair, why is it that the officials are disturbing only this section for a long time. For the last five months this has been the case. Because of this, commuters were put to great hardship. Hence, the services of this train may be operated up to Thiruverumbur, instead of cancelling at Thanjavur itself," he suggested.
